Choosing your colour scheme!

When you color your interior, the colour you choose identifies the space. Colour is light. Colours have the power to stimulate life, trigger activity, and develop an interior's environment and appearance.

By picking a different hue, you will make the room look bigger or smaller and affect your mood and perceived temperature.

You can use colour and form to give your interior a distinct spatial impression.

Colour and feelings.

Warm colours such as red, orange, and yellow have the effect of having an aura that is simultaneously warm and friendly. These dynamic, lively colours catch your interest and make you more engaged. Warm colours are more personal than cold colours, allowing you to centre your attention on them. A wall is much more welcoming with the inclusion of a tactile structure.

On the other hand, cold colours have a soothing and refreshing effect. Green symbolises nature, unity, and peace, while blue represents tranquilly and serenity. It's common knowledge that cool colours make space appear larger and lighter.

Warm colours are also used to connote optimistic feelings, e.g. yellow may be associated with pleasure, red with passion and intimacy. However, depending on the piece's context, they can also be associated with darker themes, e.g. red can be used to signify risk. As well as relying on the context of the piece, the effect of warm colours often depends on what other colours have been used and how much. Warm colours, mainly when bright and vivid, are very different from darker, colder colours because they are opposite to the colour wheel. This could make a piece stand out further and attract the audience. Warmer colours frequently carry components to the foreground of the picture, while cooler colours, such as blue and green, anchor them to the background, but this is not always true.

The effect is a tone-on-tone look.

Using the same colour tone but different quantities of white will make the interior look more sophisticated and calming.

With monochrome palettes, you can add different textures and structures, resulting in an immediate depth effect without producing an overpowering visual effect.

If you choose to draw complex designs in many directions, you can do so.

Colour and light

Colour is a source of light. Colour is energy.

Light has a significant effect on how we interpret colour in a space.

In contrast to a dark wall, a light wall shows a lot of light. This is why the room seems to be much more prominent in lighter colours than in dark ones.

Adjust the way the light is mirrored to brighten a dark room immediately. Light and shadow interplay can be achieved with 3D frames or panels.

Colour can be tricky,

While it can sound very plain, colour is more than just having pairs on the colour wheel. Colour can create moods and determine the identity of your space. Think of how you use each colour—as a backdrop, accent, text—and play with various patterns. Think of how tints and shades will bring effect and drama to the suitable locations.

Think even how each colour would fit with its surroundings. In certain variations, each hue will take on its neighbours' properties, almost producing a new hue.

Finally, the colour scheme for any space is the primary tool for understanding the space and its users in its entirety, which is why it should be wisely chosen and implemented.
